What Has Been Lost


I wasn't going to blog any more about my friends' adoption case.  After my most recent post about it, I figured I had said all I needed to say. And then a gag order was issued in the case.

But that's been lifted now.  Because the case ended this afternoon.

Tonight, little 10-month old Baby G. is in foster care.

Tonight, little 10-month old Baby G.is 764 miles away from the house that she has known since her birth.

And tonight, little 10-month old Baby G. has been taken away from the only two people she knows as her parents.

Baby G.'s in foster care tonight because a judge decided that is a better life for her while her biological father finishes his jail sentence and regains custody.

Sleep well, judge.


"The hurt doesn't go away, the tears never cease to fall,

You cover them over with people and places,
Hoping you'll want to break away.
Oh my darling, the pain doesn't go away ...


...All the nonsense of it and oh, the pain doesn't go away.

The tears never cease to fall, the hurt doesn't go away.
The pain doesn't go away." 


"The Hurt Doesn't Go Away" ~ sung by Frank Sinatra, written by Joe Raposo
